  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Driving my 2009 BMW e93 335i on I-75 just north of Atlanta tonight and came upon a bridge that had just been redone. Unfortunately, the DOT failed to properly transition from the roadway to the bridge and I pretty much hit a 3-4" curb for lack of a better word at 70 mph. Not sure if I got air...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    About a year ago i was driving in deep snow in an unfamiliar parking lot and turned to go to the bank, happened to be a curb... hit it going about 20km/h. At first didnt notice anything but once i thought about it i started noticing the steering wasn't as sharp and the it felt kinda numb, takes...
  4. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Hello everyone, so a few weeks ago my 2007 bmw 328i's steering wheel started shaking a high speeds. I went to get an alignment and they told me the control arms were bad so i replaced those and got the alignment afterwards but my car is still shaking. It begins at around 55-60mph and gets worse...

  6. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    i picked up a new lease on a 2018 BMW in June 2019 with a dealer stock car. The mileage was around 7000 miles already on the car. 1) It's 2020 July and I took my car into the dealership for oil change. I was informed the tires are bare and needs to be replaced. They are runflat tires. The...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I complained about the road noise on my wife's 2011 X3 and it turned out the alignment is off and the tires are cupping. The tires only have about 10k miles on them and the dealer did an alignment when they were put on. He said she must have hit a pot hole or something to throw the alignment...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, I am looking for concrete values for the track setting of my E46 328i Drifter. All moralizers can take a deep breath again, this is a non-road legal drifter. I'm not interested in topics like tire wear and other things, thanks (no wonder in Germany you have to say that, otherwise people...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi all! Apologies if there is another thread out there that would shed some light, but I've searched and not coming up with much. Hoping one of you experts can provide some input! :thumbup: 2007 BMW 335i, N54, 6MT, RWD, ~160k miles 18" wheels. Don't have runflat tires Front: Michelin Pilot...
  10. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    2006 BMW Z4 3.0i Attached is my Alignment Report from NOT a BMW dealership. The rear Camber seems a little off. Anyone think this is a big deal? Anything else stand out? Thanks
  11. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    I have a 2017 M240i that i special ordered and took delivery of with 6 miles on the ODO. I have had it for almost 2 years and put 20000 miles on it. Since new the steering has been a bit vague and rubbery on center, pretty disappointing in a brand that bills itself as the UDM. But i wasn't...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2007 328xi. Just had the front lower control arms replaced and the wheels aligned. Now the steering is very light/loose and the mechanic has no idea what to do. Any help is appreciated!
  13. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I have a 2014 X3, 51K miles and the Drivetrain Malfunction light went on. I brought it in to my BMW service center and was told it was 2 ignition coils and Vanos faults which require programming. The original estimate was $891 plus tax. I asked if there was any give in that since I was only...
  14. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Hi guys, i have had my X5 since 12/2013 so needless so say, a proper alignment is in order. However, dealer is charging $400 for it and it seems pretty steep to me. Just wondering did any of you have done alignment anywhere else? Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Bimmerfest mobile app
  15. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Just had an alignment today, all in specs, only the steering wheel was not straight. When I got home and looked on the paper says -1.4 degrees rear camber on both wheels and +0.27 front camber. Shouldn't it be negative also for the front wheels? Does this impact the steering?
  16. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 1999 m3 and I just replaced my front and rear shocks and rack and pinion. My front passenger wheel is scraping against the strut (just the pressure sensor that is on the inside rim scrapes). Is this just because the car is out of alignment or is there a bigger issue. Also if it is...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I bought this '06 325i and it has STR wheels. It's also pulling a little to the right. I can't shake the thought that the PO might've put the wheels on because they destroyed the old ones sliding into a curb and tweaking the frame, so I just wanted to check it before I take it to get an...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey all, I backed into a curb (fml), and my back rear tire after much trying (replaced a few parts), and an alignment the Toe is off by -5/16. Do you think this is worth spending a few thousand dollars on if I need to replace my Sub Frame, or Knuckle? Any thoughts or advise welcome...
